Progressive Pussies and Hysterics Now Shrieking That Donald Trump Wants a Parade to Honor the Military

I guess the fear is that he will, Julius-Caesar-like, ride at the front of the parade and thrice reject a golden laurel before accepting it and becoming Emperor.

The threat of full martial law and social chaos is now so close at hand that Jeff Flake has emailed out detailed plans on where his wife and her boyfriend can meet if they're separated in the rioting.


Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) on Tuesday ripped reports that the Pentagon is organizing a military parade at President Trumpís direction, comparing the president to French leader Napoleon Bonaparte.

"I was stunned by it to be quite honest. I mean, we have a Napoleon in the making here. And I believe that we have so many issues around the world in terms of preparing for wars that are ongoing, and wars that may be in the offing because of what's happening in North Korea, that I would say that it's really a waste of money," Speier told CNN's Anderson Cooper.

"I think everyone should be offended by his need to always be showing. He's truly Napoleon-like," she added, referring to Bonaparte, who led France's military in the French Revolution before becoming the country's emperor.

It should be noted that while Napoleon was a world class prick who drenched the world in blood to gratify his own outsized ego, he did kill a lot of Social Justice Warriors in the aftermath of the Reign of Terror.

By the way, the commenter calling himself "Commenter" recommended this video by Lindybiege about Napoleon's greatest foe (and no, it's not Wellington or anyone you've likely heard of), and it's just great. This guy's name -- Sir Sidney Smith -- should be routinely mentioned among the great military leaders.

I honestly couldn't believe all the cool shit this guy did, most of it on his own initiative -- he was essentially rebuked by the British chain of command for going out to beat Napoleon in the Holy Land. And he did beat him there, by the way. This guy went rogue so much he could star in a Tom Cruise movie.

Oh, and Lindybiege really opened my eyes to the full costs in human lives of Napoleon's pointless invasion of just about the entire world. I had previously believed, not sure why (maybe I had a pro-Napoleon prof at one time) that Napoleon's invasions were chiefly defensive to overcome the British-led Cordon Sanitaire against France, but really, what was the point of invading Egypt and the Levant, except to compete with Alexander the Great in some dick-measuring contest with a ghost?

Anyway, really great video. It's an hour long but if you give it ten minutes, you'll want to watch the rest.

BTW, the sidebar is well-stocked today. Given that this is a lame post, feel free to just talk about whatever more than usual.

65 As I said yesterday on this topic -


Caged ISIS captives, maybe some Gitmo detainees too, rolled along, flanked by their captors and interrogators, wearing the old pro wrestling masks.


And - borrowing this from somebody else - war elephants.


More seriously, few seem to recall there was a parade in June 1991 for the first Gulf War. Fantastic weather, very nice parade. F-117s flying down the Mall.


And it elicited exactly the response you'd expect, and are now seeing from some. Actually one of my first "WTF?" moments with a few people, who had a visceral negative reaction they couldn't explain. Typical urban libs with little understanding of the world, the military, or national security. But their irrational disgust at the idea of a parade was striking.

Posted by: rhomboid at February 07, 2018 02:28 PM (QDnY+)

66 On the one hand, I wish Trump would have a parade on the chance it would start a riot and burn Washington DC to the ground.

On the other hand, I fear Trump's idea of having a military parade on a national holiday could provoke a riot that would burn Washington DC to the ground.

On the Gripping Hand, the left would scream, make a lot of noise, and do nothing.

So I'm quite conflicted.

You remember the story? Caesar surrounded Vercingetorix with a palisade, and then Gaul reinforcements surrounded Caesar with one, and were starving the Romans. Vercingetorix pushed the women and children out into the first annular region, thinking Caesar would have to take them in, and thereby exacerbate their supply problem, and ultimately make the Romans surrender.

Wrong. Caesar said "fuggit" and left the Gauls' women and children to starve to death, apparently figuring if Vercingetorix wasn't fussed about his own women and children, why should Caesar be?

Tough guy. Actually, both of them were tough guys.

Now it is the military ... using football for starters, now a proud display of military is being trashed by the left. They hate the military, as we have seen repeatedly. (no man left behind, except Hillary/Obama and Benghazi ... let them burn)

But Trump's last EO did suggest we are at least in part, in "national emergency". Which I presume is this deep state attempted coup, and deep state cooperation with oligarchs and groups advocating chaos (BLM, Antifa, EU?, tech giant censors and propandists).

So with some of the FBI threatening Trump (Rosenstein just threatened to subpoena congress for private emails unless they stop with their "oversight") ... that means we may depend on the military side for intelligence against the deep state (other IC agencies run by thugs).

So this is deep state complaining about Trump using his legit powers as POTUS to stop an illegitimate coups by deep state. maybe.

Mrs. Leggy- (2/7/18 ) One of my fifth grade students, named Michael, has just been diagnosed with a brain tumor and will be having surgery this Thursday, 2/8/18. We won't know how bad it is until the docs can attempt to remove and biopsy the tumor. I will update this when I know more.

USNtakim- (2/7/18 ) My wife (Jkim) has been diagnosed with Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) A progressive chronic arthritis mainly affecting her pelvis and lower back (for now). Her hips knees elbows hands and feet are also involved. She is going to start injecting Humira . Pray for the easing of her pain, success in stopping the progression without side effects and peace for her and me. I have Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) there is no treatment or any cures. I am disabled and lean on her (literally) for so much. Having two chronic progressive conditions is a burden we never counted on. Pray for us.

Curmudgeon- (2/7/18 ) My mother has been mostly bedridden, half paralyzed, and unable to speak since a catastrophic stroke on February 23, 2015. Please pray for her
peaceful departure, since recovery now appears impossible.

117 I have no doubt that this is meant to drive the left nuts. It also was an opportunity for Trump to find out who in the Pentagon he could trust with questions such as this.

I know I would've spoke (or emailed whatever) to more than one person about this parade and now he knows which people he can trust not to leak stuff he asks about to the media.

Cause each person was asked in a slightly different way so as to separate the leakers from the non leakers.

And what's wrong with a parade? If Obama had asked the media would be swooning all over about how patriotic and how thoughtful the light bringer was to give the military a chance to show off.

So once again: Trump = 2, FNM = 0, Pentagon Leakers = -1

186 The White House response seems kind of ambiguous - they aren't saying, hell yeah we want a parade. Merica!

They are also not saying oh pshaw, we don't want a parade.

They said the President thought that a celebration that showed the nation's appreciation of our Armed Forces was a great idea, and the Pentagon is looking at it.

I think this is Trumpian stray voltage. Okay, let's get the Dems and CNN (yeah I know) to freak the fuck out about the military once again and show just how out of touch they are with the American people.

And, yes, I know, it makes the independents feel all oogie like this is North Korea just like they said on CNN!

When it turns out to be the most awesome thing evAr, they will look stupid, and once again the spun up independents will go, oh, crap, those lying liars lied again. Maybe I should stop listening to them and losing my shit whenever they say Trump is just about to be Hitler.

IIRC, Napoleon leveraged the campaign into promoting himself back in France, a power play. He became First Consul or something, prior to becoming emperor. Read something about that in Christopher Herolds's The Age of Napoleon.

Trump did sign an EO declaring a state of emergency - although it was couched in terms of human trafficking and the need to freeze the assets of those involved in "related corruption".

Soros dumped his money into a registered charity about the same time. And over the last couple days the Rothchilds sold off a lot of properties and stock holdings. Bing or dogpile it.

So the left is aware of what is coming and is preparing the ground by laying out the narrative that he is a dictator so they can attempt to rally/divide some response either from law enforcement, armed forces or paid rioters.

Are there currently 13,000 +sealed indictments in PACER for the whole country and that's like 10x's what you see in a year?

Trump did sign an EO declaring a state of emergency - although it was couched in terms of human trafficking and the need to freeze the assets of those involved in "related corruption".

Soros dumped his money into a registered charity about the same time. And over the last couple days the Rothchilds sold off a lot of properties and stock holdings. Bing or dogpile it.

So the left is aware of what is coming and is preparing the ground by laying out the narrative that he is a dictator so they can attempt to rally/divide some response either from law enforcement, armed forces or paid rioters.

Are there currently 13,000 +sealed indictments in PACER for the whole country and that's like 10x's what you see in a year?

Others in public for Vets Day, July 4th, etc so not sure what all the ruckus is.

353 Yeah, 9/11 had the feeling of a different world. It was surreal at times. It kind of, just for a moment, showed us what a world without insanity would look like.

Which is why the left reacted so violently and insanely against it (sort of like Trump winning). Its still a crazy world, but for a while, less so.

I've seen enough divorce cases that I don't put much credence in anything that gets said in them - not that I disbelieve them per se, it's just who knows.

So they dug up accusations from his ex-wife from the 2010 divorce, and now he's chosen to resign rather than be a distraction for the team to have to deal with.

The site I looked up says that brigantines were often used (in the entire) as seaborne jails, so "brig" came to mean both a brigantine and a naval prison.

518 I'm confused. My father paraded for FDR in the Philippines in 1944 or so. Was FDR a Napoleon?

519 For over a thousand years, Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of a triumph - a tumultuous parade. In the procession came trumpeters and musicians and strange animals from the conquered territories, together with carts laden with treasure and captured armaments. The conqueror rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children, robed in white, stood with him in the chariot, or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the conqueror, holding a golden crown, and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting.

All indications are that, no, he is not allowed to watch.

521 Good girls never say yes right away. It is programmed into them. They follow a reproductive strategy that demands demonstrated commitment from the male before each step of advance in any possibly romantic relationship. This is how she selects for suitors who will remain committed and help her raise the children he fathers with her: it is how the good woman finds her good man.

In the bad girl strategy (called "matriarchy") females just mate with whatever herd bull they can get to impregnate them and then raise the offspring without help from their father (thus the matriarchal "female head of household": there is no man around except for the occasional sperm drop).

The bad girl strategy can succeed largely because the male offspring tend to be good at having lots of girlfriends, just like their daddies. Working against the reproductive success of this strategy, the children get little parenting and few resources.

Where the matriarchal $#!t hits the fan, and gets blown into every section 8 corner of the country, is when it is supported by government via welfare programs. But now Google and Facebook have come up with another fan for the matriarchal $#!t to hit.

They are in effect demanding that girls be bad girls if they want to have any hope of finding a romantic relationship at work. The man who continues to pay attention to a good woman as she tests his willingness to persist, this good man who she is looking for is being suppressed and blocked off from her by extreme zero-tolerance policies. ONLY bad girls allowed, stupid brain-dead bad girls, while all the would-be-faithful men have already been fired or are wrapped up in straight-jackets.

522 "that Napoleon's invasions were chiefly defensive to overcome the British-led Cordon Sanitaire against France,"

No, this is correct. Even the invasion of Russia derived from this thinking - specifically, "the Brits are just not ever going to let up, this war is not going to stop short of our surrender or theirs, and starving them of all European trade might push it toward theirs - whaddya mean the Russians are cheating on the embargo? we'll just see about THAT".

The Brits had cause to regret their victory; the restoration of the Bourbons resulted in further revolts and revolutions every 10-15 years until the Paris Commune, the first explicitly Communist government in Europe ... which was crushed by Bonaparte's nephew, who promptly crowned himself Napoleon III and spent 20 years industrializing and modernizing France. The Brits decided they could live with him; that was the beginning of the Anglo-French alliance that has lasted until today.

" what was the point of invading Egypt and the Levant"

I notice that in spite of all the snarky responses to this, nobody has actually given an answer, so I will:

The point was Suez and the trade routes to India and the Far East. Same reason Rommel went for it a century later. Cut Britain off from its overseas empire, all of a sudden it's just a middling-size island. Also the invasion of Egypt was when Napoleon was just an army officer, he wasn't any kind of head honcho then. He made political hay of it, certainly, but he was good at making use of opportunities that way.

523 I think Trump should do something akin to a Roman "triumph," like that of Julius Caesar upon his victorious return to Rome from Gaul (as depicted in the series "Rome"). In that grand parade, Caesar put on display his defeated enemies, Vercingetorix the Gaulic leader most prominently. At the climax of the event, Vercingetorix was ritually strangled. (Of course I speak metaphorically.)

524 The first I heard of this parade idea was when a coworker (who I think voted for Trump, but I'm not 100% certain) mentioned it to me this morning, and said he felt it seemed a little "dictator-y" to him or something like that.

My first thought, though, was of saber-rattling pipsqueaks like Kim Jong-Un, who do stuff like this all the time and might just benefit, in the form of a pants-shitting terror that makes them want to re-think some their foreign policy decisions, from seeing that our armed forces are so much more impressive than theirs.

Yeah, I think Trump is just looking to speak to such enemies in a language that they'll really understand. I approve!

526 I feel like if the left ever learns to use google. we are screwed. as it is, of course they are too lazy to spend five seconds finding the pic of all the missiles being driven down Pennsylvania ave for the sainted JFK's inauguration. i also think Trump awakens every day thinking, how can i make my enemies look like anti american maniacal assholes today ..and they never , ever fail to take the bait.

527 see a lot of posts about how the iraq vets didnt get a parade. untrue, at least for the first one. there was def a parade in like 91 or so.

528 Rollory: The British didn't have a cordon sanitaire around France.French agriculture sustained the French pop and the French economy was not sophisticated enough to be dependent on exports the way 20th century economies were.The other governments did not have the will or means to blockade France so,again, not a practical strategy against France.The reason Talleyrand turned against Napoleon was his war mongering against the Austrians and his contempt for Prussia.If France had stuck to an alliance with Austria then Napoleon would have died on the throne.
Conquering Egypt would not have cut off the UK from its empire,and Britain would still have been home to the most advanced economy in the world.I'm sure India featured in his decision but his Egyptian trip was primarily to maintain his position as the talented military leader and not be compromised by the politicking of that time.
